Congratulations, McKinney, Texas!

There are a lot of beautiful, prosperous, friendly, and cultured cities in our country, but McKinney, Texas outshines all of them! This year Time’s list of Best Places to Live 2014 put McKinney at the very top of the list, and for good reason: our city is simply– the best.


Time put the average 3-bedroom house at around $200,000; while the popularity of McKinney is increasing– and thus the housing prices– it’s still at an affordable place for families and people beginning their careers to buy and settle in. Compared with larger cities, like Dallas, the price for a home and the taxes are far more affordable; plus we offer the cozy feel of a small town within a metropolitan area.

Up and coming

The projected job growth for McKinney is 13.2% according to Time— far higher than most of the other desirable cities listed. This is because McKinney has the unique virtue of attracting growth-industry jobs: Time reports that aviation, green energy, and medical services are moving to the region while Fortune 500 companies are close by– only a short commute away.


For parents of young families, quality of education is a major factor in deciding where the family should live. And McKinney doesn’t fail to deliver. The school system in the area is “college-prep” focused, with an eye on the bigger picture: AP classes start in middle school. And there are plenty of funds to make sure these kids succeed: this January, Apple Macbook Airs will be distributed to high schoolers to be used in the educational curriculum.

Quality of life

Probably one of the biggest reasons why McKinney, Texas feels like home to us at McKinney Smiles? We love the people here, and we love the small-town environment we’ve created. The homey atmosphere supports easy-going and friendly exchanges between neighbors and strangers alike. The values we place on natural areas and parks provide lots of greenery and open spaces for our children to play. Our interest in the arts and culture has supported art galleries, restored beautiful old houses to their former glory, birthed delicious food, and invited creative people to come live and add to the unique and wonderful flavor of McKinney.

McKinney Smiles is proud to be a part of this great city!

We are proud to serve McKinney’s citizens in achieving optimum, life-long oral health, through regular cleanings and preventative care. Our goal is to keep McKinney smiling!
